Boats typically run car gas and boat people all swear by Stabil.

Folks who really love motorcycles move down south and ride the year 'round. However, if you must put your bike up for the winter, I recommend Seafoam to stabilize your fuel.

A square of carpet under each wheel will help stop the tyres getting a flat spot if stood up for too long. Apart from sticking the battery on a trickle charger there really isn't any need to do anything to a bike unless its in storage for years. For the winter period I just douse the bike down in FS365 to help prevent corrosion.

Fuel will not go off if left for a few months but it can lose octane rating, so when you next ride it fill up with premium for the first refuel.

Yep. Just buy some good gloves and ride it every weekend, no matter what.
